July 30, 2005 - (Vancouver, BC) – After another year of record revenue growth, Founder and CEO, Brian Scudamore announced today that the popular junk removal service

1-800-GOT-JUNK?, will expand into Sydney, Australia by the end of 2005.

Australia will be the company’s first International franchise to open outside of the United States and Canada. While expansion of the service has reached an all time high of more than 1000 franchise territories, the company’s leadership team believe the business is ready to grow beyond the North American market.

After examining demographics and waste statistics in countries like Britain and New Zealand, the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? executives team agreed that Australia was the natural choice. The Australia market not only supports the population requirements to grow the business, the clear Australian concern for their environment also shows promise for a service like 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, which donates all possible items to charity and recycling facilities.

According to Scudamore, “We are pioneering the next big brand, and professionalizing a typically “messy” industry. Australians especially value their recreational time, like North American’s. Our service isn’t just about junk removal, it’s about saving people time, and helping get things done.”

“It has always been our vision to expand internationally,” adds Cameron Herold, the company’s COO, “but we’ve taken our time researching where the best initial market would be. This is a fantastic next step forward.”
